To the Moon and Back...

Hey everyone!

I have one more card to show for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC86.This card is really close to my heart because ever since my kids were babies, I would always quote Dr. Seuss and tell them I love them to the moon and back. Every night to this day, after storytime and prayers we still say it and when I saw this ADORABLE "The Places You'll Go" stamp set from Taylored Expressions I knew I had to have it :)I flipped the main panel from right to left and used my Labels One Nestabilities and Circle Nestabilities to frame this adorable rocket ship, which I colored up with BG10, BG72, YR12, Y35 and Y00. I finished off the image on the moon and stars with some VERY appropriately titled "Stardust" stickles ;)

I used Prism Cardstock in Island Mist light which is even prettier than Baja Breeze (gasp! can you believe I said that?!?) in real life. LOVE this color! I think it looks so pretty paired it up with Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird DP! LOVE Cosmo Cricket! I finished it all off with some filigree brads and trim by My Mind's Eye. I adore this color scheme and it's perfect for my boys :)

Well, it's been a great day and I hope you all have been having a great week!

See you back here tomorrow and thanks SO much for stopping by!

Jess :)
